Feminism, U.S. Presidential Elections, and Much More- Meghan Markle and Gloria Steinem had the Time of Their Lives with this Interview!
With the U.S. elections right around the corner, this interview couldn’t have come at a better time.
In an exclusive session, Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, and Gloria Steinem, the American journalist celebrated as “the world’s most famous feminist,” sat down for a little historical backyard chat about November’s presidential election and the representation of women in the voting system.
With women having put in 100 years of fight and struggle to gain equal rights, the duo shed light on how far feminists have come since then, and how the field has grown to include many men- including her husband, the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry.
While on the subject of Harry, Meghan pointed out how proud she is of him for openly admitting to being a feminist, and making sure that his wife and everyone else knew that, too. She noted that Harry is turning out to be a tremendous influence for their baby boy, Archie, as he provides a much-needed image of a nurturing and loving father.
It is vital for a child to grow under the supervision of such an influence that makes it a point to acknowledge and be proud of their self-identification. There is no shame in openly admitting being an advocate for fundamental human rights, Meghan states, and of course, that includes women, too.
For the last couple of weeks, Meghan has been using her voice and her platform to encourage people to vote. During the conversation, the celebrity made sure to highlight the importance of voting once again, stating that she firmly believes voting at every election is a way of honoring the women who fought for these rights all those years ago.
The duo goes on to converse about their concerns regarding the young people in the country, who are notedly, the least likely to vote. The common perception among this age group seems to be that there is no point in voting and that their choices don’t ever seem to have an impact.
In an attempt to clear this doubt, Steinem points out that young people should be the first ones to vote, since they are going to be around much longer than she is, or Meghan is. Young people are the future of the country, and they deserve to have their voices heard and to have an individual sitting in the Oval Office who they fully trust and believe in.
Wrapping up the conversation, the pair also discuss their excitement for the Vice President’s democratic nominee, Kamala Harris, who will be the first Black woman and the first woman of Indian descent to ever be on a Presidential ticket.
Only time will tell what’s to come of the U.S. Presidential Elections 2020. Until then, we urge you to prepare yourself and think wisely before casting your vote.
